“Read Claudia Connor for a consistently raw and emotional love story,” recommends Carly Phillips. Now the swoon-worthy McKinney Brothers series from this bestselling author continues as JT, the youngest of the trio, discovers that only love can make him whole.
She’s fighting for control. . . . Paige Roberts learned to fend for herself growing up. Now she’s doing everything possible to give her daughter, Casey, the stability she never had. But when the vivacious five-year-old decides she’s done wearing her prosthesis, Paige faces her toughest challenge yet: trusting a handsome, brooding stranger who simply wants to help.
He’s struggling to connect. . . . JT McKinney lost more than his leg in a car accident that stole his dreams of pro football. Eight years later, he’s made a new life for himself far away from his old one. His business is developing cutting-edge prosthetics and he’s more than happy to turn his attention to machines instead of people. Still, he can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing.
Will they take a chance on love? . . . When JT gets the chance to help Paige’s daughter, he takes it. He never planned on the two of them tearing down his walls or teaching him to believe in himself again. Paige might not believe in happily ever afters, but JT wants more than anything to be her prince. They’ll both have to let go of the past if they want a future.
What I thought about Worth It All
JT McKinney doesn't let the fact he lost his leg hold him back, at least not when it comes to leading an active life. He's got a great job helping others with prosthetics and a whole slew of friends. He's not looking for romance until he meets Paige one night at the diner.
Paige works hard at two jobs and being a single mom is tough to handle while going to school, but she'd do anything to give her daughter a better life. She never factored a man into that equation but when Jake McKinney charms them both, she falls hard.
Then there's Casey. Claudia Connor does what she did in the first book in this series and made me fall in love with the five year old. Jake falls for her too, and she's just too precious without being annoying and I appreciated that. Her and Jake melted my heart a few times.
Both Jake and Paige have some old wounds to get over before they can move forward and the maturity in which they deal with their past warmed my heart many times over. I fell in love with these two at the same time they were falling in love in the book.
Worth It All is a lovely contemporary romance that kept me interested from the beginning to end. It had me tearing up at the right places and smiling, too. It's sweet -- a real feelgood romance. I like this series a whole lot. Recommended.
